Baseball Notches Win #40 With 11-8 Victory at USC Aiken
AIKEN, SC -- Catawba grabbed a 9-3 lead after three innings and held off host USC Aiken for an 11-8 win in baseball action on Saturday afternoon at Hernandez Stadium. The 26th-ranked Catawba Indians close out the regular-season with a 40-11 mark and will next play in the NCAA II Southeast Regional Tournament from May 13-16. The Pacers, ranked 25th in NCAA II, fall to 31-18.
Wade Moore (Salisbury, NC/W. Rowan HS/NC State) got Catawba rolling as he led off the game with a homer. John Neese (Summerfield, NC/NW Guilford HS/Guilford Tech) added a three-run shot in the frame as the Tribe took a 4-0 lead. Aiken battled back as Travis Howard made an Indian error pay with a two-out, two-run homer in the Pacer first, while Josh Attaway singled home a run in the second to cut the lead to 4-3.
Catawba took command with a five-run fourth. Criage Lyerly (Salisbury, NC/E. Rowan HS) singled to open the inning, extending his streak of reaching base safely to 86 games. Josh Hohn (Greensboro, NC/S. Guilford HS/N. Greenville) got a run home on a bases-loaded sacrifice fly. Brett Underwood (Greensboro, NC/SW Guilford HS) singled home a run and Corey Parker (Kernersville, NC/Glenn HS) plated a run on a ground out. Moore and Ryan Bostian (Kannapolis, NC/S. Rowan HS/Montreat) singled home the last two runs of the inning.
The Pacers kept creeping back into the game. Gary Asbill hit a two-run homer in the sixth to close the gap to 10-5 then USCA pulled within 11-8 in the eighth on a pinch-hit, two-run homer by Tripp Warrick. A two-out Catawba error in the ninth allowed the Pacers to load the bases, but Brett Hatley (Salisbury, NC/W. Rowan HS) came to get a ground out to notch his second save.
Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS) had three hits to pace the Catawba offense. Moore, Bostian, Lyerly and Underwood all had two hits. Nick Lomascolo (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) picked up the win to improve to 7-2. He allowed five runs (three earned) off eight hits over six innings.
